Unwanted and unsightly hair on your legs can be a problem, especially during warm weather. Waxing is one of the more traditional methods for removing hair, but many people are now turning to laser hair removal as a solution to the problem. So what are the advantages of laser hair removal? And is it more effective than waxing?

Let’s look at some of the benefits of laser hair removal for your legs.


Waxing is only a temporary solution for hair removal. Depending on the individual, waxing unwanted leg hair can result in a few weeks without hair growth, but eventually that unsightly regrowth will occur. When you choose laser hair removal, you are choosing a permanent solution. The laser treatment causes permanent changes to the hair follicles which results in hair regrowth becoming sparser. Be aware, however, that you will require several treatments before you experience permanent effects.


Laser hair removal is more expensive in the short term, however in the long run, you will undoubtedly be saving money. Having regular leg waxes all adds up to quite a hefty sum over the course of a year. After enough laser treatments, you will no longer experience regrowth and therefore will no longer require any treatments.

Virtually Painless

Everyone knows that waxing can be extremely painful. Laser treatments are considerably less painful and as the regrowth becomes sparser, it is virtually painless.
